Lismore Community Garden is underway and wants to help you learn how to produce a bumper crop

The Lismore Community Garden at 50 Brewster Street is a joint project of Rainbow Region Community Farms Inc and the Northern Rivers Social Development Council, funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health & Ageing and land supplied by Lismore City Council for the establishment of an urban community garden benefiting all Lismore residents.

Ground was seriously broken at the beginning of December 2009 and numerous training events will be held this year.

So if you live in the Lismore area and are interested learning about healthy food and sustainable productive gardening, here is the timetable for on-site training from early February to early July 2010:
